Allelopathy plays an major role in agricultural management such as weed control, crop protection, and crop re-establishment. Compositae plants have potent allelopathic activity, and the activity is confirmed through (a) bioassays with aqueous or various solvent extracts and residues, (b) fractionation, identification, and quantification of causative(More)
Photodynamic and photoprotective responses at different irradiances were investigated in transgenic rice (Oryza sativa) expressing Bradyrhizobium japonicum 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase (ALA-S). With high irradiance (HI) of 350 µmol m−2 s−1, transgenic lines P5 and P14 showed a decrease in contents of chlorophyll (Chl) and the chloroplast-encoded gene psbA(More)
Maize catalase (CAT) mutants lacking in CAT isozymes were used to investigate the response of CAT and superoxide dismutase (SOD) to norflurazon (NF) caused oxidative stress in 18-d post-pollination scutella. NF treatment caused an increase in malonyldialdehyde content, which is an indicator of oxidative stress, and a decrease in a content of photoprotectant(More)
